    About - Langtang Valley Trek

    Langtang Valley Trek is a popular short trek that consists of a lot of unique scenes in the Himalayan region. The trekking route ascends the Langtang Valley from just 1,470m at Syabrubesi to hit the 3,870m at Kyanjin Gompa, following majestic Langtang Khola, lush green forest, and bamboo groves to a collection of high alpine pastures, glaciers, and mountains on the border with Tibet. Langtang Valley Trek is the most visited trekking trail after Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Nepal. Trekking in the Langtang region has always been a praised and ideal trekking destination for thousands of adventure seekers and trekking enthusiasts due to its mystical scenes of snow-capped mountains and the enchanting culture of the Tamang ethnic group. People often know this route as the quieter wilderness trekking trail of Nepal.

    Langtang valley is a little small area beautifully surrounded by snow-capped peaks in Langtang National Park. Langtang National Park is Nepal's first Himalayan protected area which is protecting the diversity of 14 diverse vegetation in 18 ecosystem types. Colorful rhododendron, oak, alder, maple, and pine are the most common trees found in the valley. Langtang National Park is also home to several rare and endangered animals. Himalayan black bears, musk deer, grey langur, snow leopards, wild boar, Goral, and one rare and most endangered Red Panda are protected in Langtang National Park. Tibetan snowcock and Snow Partridge make Langtang valley more diverse in flora and fauna.

    How to get to Langtang Valley?

    There are three different options to enter Langtang valley. First, you can hire a private jeep/car from Kathmandu, which is a little more expensive than normal public transportation. If you are trekking through a travel agency, then you won’t need to worry about it.
    Secondly, you can book the public bus as well to reach Syabrubesi, which normally runs from Balaju Kathmandu. They have AC Delux and comfortable public transportation to Langtang Region. It cost around 8-10USD per person, which is quite cheaper than a private Jeep/Car. The trail is almost normal, but sometimes you need to travel off-road which is somehow scary as well.

    Langtang valley trek can be done around the year since the altitude is quite normal as compared to high mountain trekking and also it's normally moderate in trekking grading. Despite this, there is always favorable weather for the amazing view of mountains and landscapes. Spring and Autumn are the best seasons to trek in all the Himalayan regions of Nepal and including Langtang valley as well. Though, with proper safety and measures, you can travel throughout the year. You must be ready to blend with pristine nature and enjoy the jaw-dropping mountain views on the trek. Normally in peak season, the weather will be comfortable to explore the authentic beauty of the Langtang region and the surrounding will amaze you with their phenomenal view and outstanding beauty.

      Great Trek in Nepal with LHN

      Since the day I decided to do this trip today, the service of the Luxury Holiday Nepal has been THE BEST!! Greet arrangement of The Hotel room and favorable foods and Dinner which was possible by Luxury Holiday Nepal. I always got a rapid response to all my questions and inquiries, Ramhari our guide, always responded in a professional and friendly manner. I started the trek from Kathmandu to Lantang valley which was a great success and gave us a good insight into the culture, customs, and way of life of the people, as well as some spectacular views of the mountains, and a close-up look at the wildlife. We were fortunate that Ramhari was able to accompany us on some of our excursions and able to give us extensive information about the land, buildings, and people that we saw.

      We wholeheartedly recommend Luxury Holiday Nepal to anyone looking to have a touring/trekking holiday in Nepal.

      Well organized trek. We are happy with our Langtang Trek through LHNl.What an amazing trip. Five friends and I did the 11 days trek to Langtang. From our arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, They took us to the hotel. The hotel in Kathmandu was really good and comfortable and close to the tourist area so it was easy to get around. The guide and porters were amazing, everything was first class. It was a great experience and became successful with the help of such lovely people. This region is rich in diversity, ethnic groups, and culture. We learned so much about trekking and Nepali culture during the trek. We heartily recommend Luxury Holiday Nepal to anyone looking to have a touring/trekking holiday in Nepal.
